Gen Z’ers Suffering Early Mid Life Crisis: The Daily Mail says Gen Z’ers are facing early mid-life crisis' due to social media. The U.S. Surgeon General says constant exposure to social media is causing declining happiness among 15 to 24-year-olds. This has led to the U.S. dropping out of the top 20 happiest nations list. America is currently the 62nd happiest nation.


Swearing And The Middle Finger Can Reduce Pain: IFLScience says a recent study conducted on college students in Michigan found that using curse words and making obscene gestures can increase a person’s pain tolerance.  The participants were asked to swear and use taboo gestures while undergoing pain-inducing tasks. The researchers discovered that engaging in taboo acts enabled the students to endure pain significantly longer compared to engaging in neutral behaviors. This suggests that swearing and giving the middle finger may have an analgesic effect.



Travis Kelce says he loved attending Justin Timberlake's recent concert in Los Angeles. People magazine quotes him as saying, “He was playing a bunch of renditions of his old classics. Absolute bangers. It was so cool to see him play some of my favorites and then on top of that a handful of his new stuff, as well as his new hit single with *NSYNC.”


Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone magazine that the smallest things in your life can have the biggest impacts on you. “I think the tiniest little thing, good or bad, can change the course of your day, which can change the course of your year, which can change who you are.”


Noah Kahan tells Paste magazine that our pasts will always be a part of us. “I think, whether we like it or not, where we’re from will always play a part in our lives. I think we can allow more or less of it, but I think it will always be something that is a part of us. For me, in particular, my hometown has always been a very magnetic force. For me, it’s been a source of a lot of pain and a lot of moments of hardship. But it’s also been a source of so many moments of beauty. And, as I’ve gotten older, it’s always been a place where I felt comfortable."


Selena Gomez tells Billboard magazine that there's still so many things she wants to do in life. “I don’t think balance is consistent for me because of my lifestyle. The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve understood that this is my job and this is what I want to do with my life, so I want to enjoy it. And I make time for the things that are important. Maybe when I get older, I’ll be different, but who I am — my work ethic, my life — is this: the hustle. And I get bored. I just want to do so many cool things with so many awesome people.”


Lewis Capaldi tells MSN that he woke up mortified after drunk-dialing Coldplay’s Chris Martin. "I don't even know him. I was trying to send him a message, because I just think he's the best. I woke up in the morning and it had been a missed FaceTime call."

She’s played some of Travis’ computer sports games and he’s taken over the kitchen, cooking her up some of his favorite dishes.’’

A source says, "Their children have always been their number one priority, but now that the kids are off on their own, they had to come up with a plan to keep from getting on each other's nerves.  Catherine suggested they go their own ways more often, pursuing their individual hobbies and projects. Catherine is keeping busy with her hobbies and she's playing a lot of golf with friends. They also agreed to stay away from heavy topics that might lead to arguments.''


The Hollywood Reporter says Conor McGregor took a role in 'Road House' to challenge Meryl Streep's views on MMA. McGregor felt motivated by Streep's Golden Globes speech dismissing MMA as not belonging in the arts. He says, “Fighting is the most beautiful form of art, and you know, it’s a great thing to come into this game, which is also art. I was really taken aback because fighting is an art. It’s brutal also, so I can understand. It’s not for somebody to make a mistake; it’s real artistry for those who do what we do, so I came in [to filming Road House] with maybe a little chip on my shoulder and wanting to represent my sport and my art, give my best in this arena.”

Dear Fonseca,

I'm big boned and always have been.  It's genetic as everybody in my family is large. I travel quite a bit for work and sometimes get charged for two seats due to my size. I have no problem paying the money because I wouldn't want to sit next to me and be squashed. I do think there is some discrimination.  For example, I think parents should have to pay extra to fly with toddlers. Many families have been flying over the past week for Spring Break. I've been on two flights where toddlers are doing nothing, but screaming for three straight hours. I think if you’re going to charge me for being large than toddlers should be charged for being loud.  When I brought this up on a flight, several other passengers chastised me. I don't think I'm wrong. What do you think? Do I have a good point?
